Thanks for your help! We have made the move to reusables for the new year. So far we have had one wee leak (but I think the nappies & inserts will get more absorbent after a few washes?) but even giant poos are fine. They look comfy and cute! For now I am sticking with disposables overnight as boyfriend changes her at 5am with his eyes practically shut
I am keeping a tally of how many times I use them and once I make my money back every time I use one is money saved!!
geekette I actually bought a bargain ebay lot - 20 nappies + 40 inserts for £40 - I figured that was such a good deal I'd give them a try before considering the pricier branded ones They are lovely day-glo colours and fit nicely. They were dry almost before they came out the machine also so that's great.
Ironically since I posted the question she seems to have gone down to 3-4 poos a day which is a lot more manageable!
With reusables, I find it isn't the frequency of the poo which counts but it's volume...
If your lo poos that often you simply need a larger stash of nappies and a pretty large nappy bag
if she has frequent poonamis... I would stick with disposables to be honest. and that is only if the disposable holds it in. I found Naty's great for this. the others all seem a bit rubbish with what my lo is capable of producing.
We use mostly washables and DS2 poos a few times a day. I don't find them any harder to deal with than disposables - in fact, disposables are more effort as they're more likely to leak onto clothes and you I have to find a bag to put them in whereas cloth get chucked in the bucket/laundry bag whether soiled or not.
My little one is 7 weeks and up until 3 weeks pooed up to 10 times a day. The past few weeks she has pooed once every 4 days. Spoke to the hv who said either extreme is perfectly normal. I have been working as a nanny for 15 years and can confirm they definatly poop more regularly as they get older and much less than 8 times a day!
My DS used to have days when we would have several poo's (like 5- 8) and other days when he had none. At one stage he had none for two weeks - I EBF for 6 months and I think how you feed makes a difference. However, the HV told me that as long as baby is well, gaining weight etc then how many times a day they poo (or not!) is irrelevant. After all we are all different
Sorry if this is the wrong forum, not sure where to put this. Just a really quick question, my baby is 12 weeks old and poos 5-8 times a day. She is totally well, healthy, feeding brilliantly, etc. I thought this was normal but it seems many babies poo a lot less often! I really want to move to reusable nappies at some point but can't quite face doing it with this frequency of poo!
Just a quick poll - how many poos a day do you have??
